Big Picture: Army Medicine

DVD Copied by Timothy Vollmer. Story of Army medicine told on "THE BIG PICTURE" -- From the American Revolutionary War to Korea, "THE BIG PICTURE" dramatically highlights the story of "Army Medicine" and the exploits of members of the Army Medical Service who have been the tireless, constant companions of the foot soldier. World War I presented one of the greatest challenges to the Army Medical Service and excellent footage has been chosen to tell this story, showing the professional skill of the medic. Footage from the Normandy Beachhead has been integrated into this documentary and depicts the great work of medics in the Second World War. They wrote a stirring record of courage and devotion, and frequently became doctor, nurse, and litter bearer rolled into one. Human suffering was their personal war, and the marks of that war were always visible. "They wore the old-young faces of haggard men," said a reporter who recorded their work in Europe. Action in the Pacific, captured on motion picture film, shows the medics that landed with the first waves, bringing equipment and supplies which made the difference between life and death to the island-hopping soldiers.
